The job market is treating private business workers unfairly. White and blue collar workers are underpaid and overworked. The working environment is horrible. Many workers are working salaried positions sometimes 70 hours per week, on a salary with no overtime pay.
I feel that the private businesses are using the economy as an excuse to treat workers poorly. White and blue collar workers alike. Pay has been lowered, but work increased. Taxes have increased, sales and income taxes. The private sector keeps complaining there are too many regulations and they are costly.
Our country needs to loosen the state, county and federal regulations so the private sector can go back to functioning normally and treating employees with some respect and value. The massive permit regulations have made it almost impossible for the housing industry to rebound. Along with EPA requirements. I worked in the housing industry for many years. I watched the industry fall and crumble due to Sarbanes-Oxley, EPA and State, and local permit regulations.
Why are we regulating the private sector so much when we need good, stable jobs?
The private sector is not going to have such jobs until we loosen the regulations and taxes, federally, state and locally.
Loosen the regulations, and jobs will magically appear.
However, the regulations and taxes are no excuse for the poor treatment of workers in the private sector. I have never seen employees treated so badly and so underpaid in my lifetime. The employers know just how far they can go before they break the law.
Employers, please show employees respect and loyalty and they will show the same to you!
Congress: Loosen the regulations and red tape!
